Even though the 2009 pin celebration, The Museum of Pintiquities was just last weekend, Disney didn’t waste any time in announcing next year’s pin celebration, Trade City USA. From the What’s HapPINing blog on

One of the highlights was the announcement of Disney Pin Celebration 2010. The theme next year is Trade City, U.S.A.. Steven invited all long time and new residents of “Trade City” to help celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the founding of the city. He also explained that Trade City is an eclectic city (a cross between Radiator Springs and Main Street, U.S.A.®). The city is nestled in Trading Valley and features some amazing sites to see such as the world’s largest Ear Hat, world’s largest backer card and the world’s longest lanyard. The whole city is themed around trading. While the event will take place during the 10th Anniversary Celebration of Disney Pin Trading, the pins will be a mixture of things not necessarily related to the 10th Anniversary. Below is the logo created by Alex Maher and Tyler Dumas from Disney Design Group.

Steven said they haven’t finalized the date yet for this event but they are seriously considering mid-August (after the seasonal Passholder block-out date expires). He said to keep watching in a few weeks for that official date. He also mentioned that in the coming months Guests should look for road/traffic sign icons buried on various places on When you click on the image, it will unlock a behind-the-scenes look at this event (similar to the “Find The Keys” campaign that was done for Disney Pin Celebration 2009).
